First, 3PL’s are not limited by capacity or trailer types, they have the ability to match the need of shippers no matter the request. While carriers are limited to their capacity and the trailers in their fleet, forcing shippers to use multiple suppliers to fulfill their shipping requirements.
With our network of qualified carriers we are able to give shippers the most competitive rate with the best service. Direct carriers can only give shippers what they have to work with. So, although the carrier may give a low price, it doesn’t mean they can provide the service they’re promising.
